Using iPad to update GPS

 

Does anyone know if it is possible to update a Tomtom Via using an iPad. I know that Adobe flash is not available on remote devices, but are there any alternatives from Tomtom to update without using flash. I see that there is a browser called Photon Flash video player on the Apple app store that uses flash. Don't know if that would allow it. My pc is temporally out of service. I have a device from the Apple store that allows me to plug in a usb device into my iPad. Any help is appreciated.
Thanks

You can't do what you want to do.

Thanks

I was afraid that would be the answer. It is a shame with the advent of tablets, it would be awesome to be able to get the updates that way. Thanks for the speedy response.

It Should Happen Soon

I can't tell how many times I reach for my iPad to manage my GPS.

I am looking forward to BaseCamp on the iPad soon.

iOS does not have a file

iOS does not have a file system the user can access. That is one of the main problems. Android is far more capable in that regard, and you can use a number of file managers to copy / move files in various locations.

That is what I miss since

That is what I miss since going to an Iphone instead of staying with android. But I have to admit, I do like my Iphone and Ipad

It Is The Way the Products are Evolving and Converging

It just makes sense. I am migrating more of the work I normally do on a laptop to the iPad. I know someone that works exclusively on an iPad now. Tablets are becoming the new normal, and laptops and desktops will not be the primary computer anymore. Devices like a GPSr will have to be manageable from tablets.

I'm glad to hear that.

It would make sense that it should be this way with the popularity of the tablet. I sincerely hope your correct.

Post PC Era

We are entering the post-PC era. This has been talked about in the industry for years, while awaiting the future. In this context, "PC" means the classic desktop and laptop. The tablet is the device that is replacing the PC. The ultrabooks will probably be relinquished to a very small niche or eliminated all together.

The Signs Are Already Here

The iPhone and iPad are designed to be standalone devices that do not need a Mac to maintain it. It has been found that for many, an iPhone is their only "computer". Right now, a Mac is a convenience for maintaining or updating an iPad or iPhone.
